♫♪Nicoletta – Le Grand Amour
I guess I owe you all a bit of an apology. I know I try to bring you the greatest, most prevalent and entertaining features and coverage. Though as of lately, I’ve been so obsessed with the idea of creating, creating, creating that I’ve failed to stop and breathe. Some of you have reached out with well wishes with the new site, commending the recent content, and sharing what c&é’s inspiration has translated into for you. I’m humbled to think that I have such an energetic and enlightening group of men and women that frequent c&é for their daily dose of inspiration.

And so when I say I failed you, many of you have asked to bring back the {weekend notes}. And as one friend of c&é described this feature as “…a place where I can learn about your musings for that week… A weekly feature where I am introduced to new reading material and music. It’s like when you earmark the pages of the September issue of Vogue…” I thought I would concede that I neglected such a precious feature indeed.

I miss the writing, the sharing, the place where I can emancipate from the facade that I hide behind when I share some content throughout the week. And so here it is, every Friday’s and hopefully without any skips, the {weekend note} shall commence again. With that said, I am currently in NYC frolicking among the concrete jungle to meetings and hopefully developing some more stories to share with you, but you can join me here. Hope you, wherever you are, have the loveliest of weekends. xo -S
